Light Tape® Improves Night Safety for Road and Rail Workers
Reflective strips on high visibility jackets and clothing are useful in providing some protection for workers who work at night or in low visibility weather, but the material relies on its interaction with external and/or vehicle lights to be effective.
Our New Glo-Pro Range of Safety Clothing uses Light Tape® as an extra safety feature so even in dark, misty conditions the wearer can be seen for distances over 1 mile when the Light Tape® strip is lit.

Light Tape® International Installations

2 inch wide Rich Red Light Tape® was installed in Snap-N-Lite for Hotel Diva in Bahrain, providing a solid state lamp which uses less than 1/4 the power of LED and 1/28th the power of traditional Neon lighting coupled with greatly improved reliability.
Light Tape® New Improved 9V Battery Pack
New improved 9V driver has fixed permanent direct connection. The jack plug connection on the Light Tape® 9V driver has been changed to a more robust direct connection, the old jack plug was very small making it easy to damage if not handled carefully. Electro-LuminX proactively made the change in line with it’s ongoing product improvement program.
The new 9V driver is available on the samples link on our web page: http://www.lighttape.co.uk/?content=sample
Light Tape® on Benton Metro Footbridge Newcastle Upon Tyne
Benton Metro Station is on the Tyne and Wear Metro Yellow line between Four Lane Ends and Palmersville. A former railway station, it retains many of the original station buildings. The Station serves Benton in North Tyneside just north of Newcastle Upon Tyne, in the North East of England.
During 2011 Benton Metro Station Footbridge was upgraded to give better disabled access, providing lift access to both platforms.
Light Tape® has been used to create a modern display lighting effect to both lift shafts and the main bridge walkway.

ELECTROLUMINESCENT BILLBOARD: DAY VS NIGHT
Electro-LuminX Lighting Corporation has spent nearly 20 years developing and refining their patent-protected Light Tape electroluminescent lighting technology. Recently, the product was an integral part of a striking national billboard campaign led by MetroMedia Technologies (MMT) to launch the new Jeep Call of Duty MW3 Edition vehicle.
The campaign was released in conjunction with the Modern Warfare 3 video game that debuted November 2011. Billboards were unveiled in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, becoming the largest fully backlit electroluminescent billboard campaign to date. http://youtu.be/0gh8TSuHOss
The creative artwork for the Jeep campaign featured a unique day-to-night advertisement created by MMT. During the day, the Call of Duty Jeep is depicted driving across a rocky desert valley. But as the sun goes down and the Light Tape comes to life: a helicopter appears in the sky, a rock turns into a crushed vehicle, and the “Sunday Drive” turns into a battle scene. Weeks in preparation and a team of visionaries made this transformation possible.
Roughly 2000 square feet of Light Tape EL uniformly backlight the three billboards. A new patent-pending process enabled the standard billboards to be retrofitted with the lightweight, energy-efficient backlighting in a matter of hours, not days.
What is Light Tape®?
Light Tape® uses less than one twentieth of the power and is half the price of Neon and Cold Cathode display lighting, it is flexible, easier to install and maintain, reduces light pollution, produces no waste heat or infrared light and is fully recyclable, uses No Gas, No Glass and No Mercury.
Light Tape® is the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, in lengths up to 100m. Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design is safe with no mercury, no glass to break or gas to escape and it’s highly energy efficient too. In application, it is easy to install, requiring virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies.
